The Conscience of the Gods
Hidden Valley Ranch
A tribe of Ogres happily occupies a quaint valley in the mountains. Often occupied by farming, harvesting, brewing, and drinking, these simple savages delight in idiotic arguments, fighting, and violence. Lately, the crops have failed. The hops haven’t come to harvest to create their favorite brew, Ogresmed (15% alc, 230 cal/serving, not for people w/ heart conditions or pregnant women [not that this stops lady ogres]). In their serious state of not being drunk, the ogres were easier to command into fighting forces. With a centralized leader, they were finally a force to be reckoned with.
The HVR was contracted by Tyris to hit up the Upper Volta caravans and hand them off to Tyris’ men.
The adventurers deposed their leader, Grock. And helped a new leader reach power, Brock. The fields were tainted with an arcane power, but the ogres should be able to grow hops again on other parts of their land. Hopefully, getting them drunk again so they are busy throwing rocks at each other instead of good, civilized folk.
